I post my outfits on the blog every day at noon (12 p.m. EST) under this Style category #OOTD Daily Style and then I do a summary of all the looks in my Month of Style roundup at the end of the month.
The Brianna Hanson-inspired look from Grace and Frankie
Continuing on my Grace and Frankie lovefest, this is truly a Brianna Hanson look because she mixes bright, bold colours together, arresting, clashing… it’s her in an outfit as an inspiration.
So, I decided to channel her. Again. Orange sweater with red pants, normally too bright for a look, but when paired together, suddenly becomes a bold neutral, in my opinion!
I wanted to keep the focus on the colourblocking of the orange and red, but couldn’t resist a contrasting purple/lavender/white DIY necklace I made, that pops so perfectly against the orange.
I made this necklace as part of my DIY Upcycling initiative, where I take necklaces I don’t really wear any more, and transform them into new pieces that are interesting fun and sculptural. A lot of my old pieces, no longer reflect who I am as a person, as in some of them are too dainty, or aren’t wild or bold enough. I really think I have a streak of Iris Apfel in my style aesthetic, because the bigger, the bolder, the chunkier, the better.
